Race to the Top demands that we prepare learners to be innovative creators. Wouldn't it be fabulous to have this type of training happening in PD and classrooms?

'Genius hour': Students, what would you like to learn today?

Some schools are building in time for students to work on passion projects -- an idea inspired by Google's 20% time.

I think this is workable. As a teacher, I asked students what they wanted to learn and worked with them to connect their ideas to the curricula.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 2, 2013 11:36 PM

What if we taught our students that failure is mandatory, a part of our lives, that we can learn from our failures and move forward? This post states "We understand that failure is crucially instructive and necessary on the road to success and learning." We might ask ourselves (as teachers) if we embrace failure or if we are fearful of the possible outcomes. 

The post provides some foundational material, such as a graphic that looks at a "cycle of experiment and experience" as well as suggesting four strategies:

* Remove the fear of failure

* Create skunkworks

* Promote success

* Align IT and curriculum

And last but not least, that our schools should be cultures of innovation. Additional material is provided on each of the four strategies in the post.

When I teach high school game design, my students learn that failure is a part of the creative and innovative design process.

Once again Michael Gorman has put together a great list of Web 2.0 tools that you might want to use in your classroom. In this post he provided information on 15 tools, and each tool has a variety of resources, ranging from tutorials to blog postings that discuss the tool to ways you might use the tool in your classroom and much more. A few of the tools mentioned include:

* Glogster

* Voki

* Answer Garden

Check the post to learn more about these plus 11 additional tools!

Check out this list of tools that should be your digital classroom toolbox.

Blake Mead's curator insight, October 17, 11:52 AM

I wish web 2.0 tools were used more in my school after reading this. I think if we incorporated it into our school we would have better test scores.
